The Dr. Francis? Medical Museum is a museum in Jacksonville, Alabama, dedicated to the history of the professional medical practice in the state. It features an old medical office owned and ran by Dr. J. C. Francis, a former family physician in the city.

The Dr. Francis? Medical Museum was opened in 1974, after a marker was erected in Dr. Francis? honor by his great grandson. The museum is housed in the original 1850 structure that served as the doctor?s office for about forty years. Visitors can find in the museum a number of apothecary jars, a plantation first aid kit, surgical instruments, medicine bottles, and other medication containers that were used to dispense drugs to clients back in the day. There are also period furnishings, tools, journals, and books on the site.
